Good Things Come in Threes. So Does this Post. Which May Not Be a Good Thing

I am stealing yet another meme from Amy Beth because we've actually had summer this week and I am determined to enjoy every last snow-free minute of it. For those of you that think I kid, let me refer you here.

Three names I go by:

1. Mommy. Actually to be more accurate it is usually mommmmeeeee, mommmmeeee, mom, mom, hey mommmmeeee, excuse me, excuse me moooooooommmmmmmmeeeeeeee, all to be said within 3.7 seconds without taking a breath.

2. Pumpkin. 34 years old and this is still my dad's most common nickname for me. I wouldn't have it any other way.

3. Mrs. R. That's probably the thing I miss most about teaching. I liked being Mrs. R. It made me seem cool. Or at least as cool as a 23 year old in a jumper is going to get.

(What? You thought I was going to tell you my real name? Nice try.)

Three jobs I've had in my life

1. Receptionist at an airport. NOTE. If your house is less than four minutes from the airport, you are going to hear airplanes. Deal with it. PLEASE DO NOT CALL the nice student receptionist who is making seven dollars an hour and yell at her about it. She cannot change the flightpath for you, she can't even change her screensaver without permission.

2. Teacher. No, I do not plan on doing that ever again thankyouverymuch.

3. Accounts Receivable Clerk. Yes, it is as boring as it sounds.

Three places I've lived

1. Student housing at SWBTS. As part of our lease we were not allowed portable dishwashers, R rated movies and alcohol. But at $ 340/ month for a two bedroom furnished suite I would have walked backwards around campus singing showtunes while balancing a cat on my head if they asked.

2. A basement suite that was so small we couldn't fit a table and we had to walk through the kitchen to get to the bathroom but our landlords were amazing so we DID NOT CARE.

3. A 35 year old Nelson Package home. It let out more heat than it kept in and I think the previous owners were attempting to win the world's worst sponge painting superbowl. It was our very first house and the place we brought Spud home to so as far as I'm concerned, it was perfect.

Three favorite drinks

1. Sweet Tea

2. Chai Tea Lattes

3. London Fog

So, basically I like tea with LOTS of sugar.

Three of my favorite foods (it is killing me to only pick three.)

1. Steak

2. Cashew Chicken in Yellow Bean Sauce

3. Shrimp

Three things I'm decent at

1. Writing

2. Momming.

3. Baking

Three things I'm addicted to

1. You're reading it

2. Star Trek Voyager (it's a sickness really)

3. Dark Chocolate

How did the housing authorities know if you had an R rated movie in your apartment?

Hmmm.... now I'm musing about all the ways that they could monitor that!

When were you an A/R Clerk? Was that when you were on the coast?

Janet said...

See? That's why you and I get along so's the dark chocolate. ;-)

mmmmm...tea with sugar.

That receptionist at an airport one cracked me up. But I bet that stunk, having to take the complaints.
